Dependent spouse moving from L2 to H4 .Looking for other visa options. Details about H3 visa type.

Asked 11 months ago - Des Plaines, IL

I am working on L1 visa and some other company filed my H1B visa and it got approved . My spouse was working as a QA analyst on L2 visa with EAD . As i will move to H1 her visa automatically will move to H4.
Is there any visa type she can ask her employer to file for her so that she can continue working. I am looking for visa options which are easier and faster to get .
I heard from some employers about H3 visa . Can you please describe about that also. Will it help her to work also.
